One of the most famous and prodigious composers in history, Mozart (1756-1791), was born Johannes Chrysostomus Wolfgangus Theophilus Mozart in the Archbishopric of Salzburg in Austria. At an extremely young age, he showed immense talent with both the keyboard and the violin, and was performing in front of royalty from the age of five. During his rather short life, he composed hundreds of works which have continued to generate a massive influence even to this day.
